The international teachers and interns work in WeCan schools to persistently explore the hidden talents in the children and to promote them. Apart from teaching specific subject, they also organize games, art lessons, singing, dancing and other creative educational and extra-curricular activities. They also support children with their homework efforts and encourage academic progress.
Though there are numerous issues that may be resolved by concrete community action at the local level, there are some with global significance and impact that need an international treatment. Education is one such issue that afflicts the global population. WeCan has developed a multi-prolonged strategy to benefit volunteers and interns while they make a difference.
